A Day I Feel Good About

Posted Nov 14 2012 12:00am

First of all, I want to say thank you to you sweethearts who stood up for me after the ignorant anonymous comment. That means a lot to me and I appreciate your support. Hello, dummy, I HAVE been upping my exercise and I AM eating the minimum that WW recommends right now. So shove it. MmmmmHmmm…

Anyways, I’ll probably be in for it after even acknowledging the comment, but I at least wanted to say thank you. Smile

For breakfast this morning, I ate TJ’s whole wheat toast with PB and a sliced banana along with a glass of skim.

I had to go into the office today for a meeting, so I grabbed my coffee with creamer to go today. Peppermint mocha creamer today.

On my break, I ate light vanilla yogurt with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and chia seeds.

Eating chia seeds in public may not be the smartest decision. Sometimes I feel them on my teeth after eating them…lol.

They announced my transition into a new position at work today. It’s not really deemed a “promotion” but it is to me! I will be writing full time now. Yippee!!!! This doesn’t formally start for a few weeks yet. I feel like I will be utilizing my degree. It will be great experience.

I also got a very nice plaque for my service today! What a nice recognition. I will hang it proudly in my office.

After work, I headed over to Pita Pit to pick up some lunch. I got the chicken breast on wheat. I chose to forego the chips today. Go me! Winking smile

Nom Nom!

AND, since I am a good 20 lbs. heavier than last winter, my winter coat (that was slightly snug last year in anticipation of being smaller this year) is just too tight this year. It looks dumb. BUT my winter coat from TWO years ago is ridiculously HUGE on me. What a conundrum. Sad smile

It is what it is. So I went to Old Navy and picked up a $30 jacket. It’s cute and black. I needed a black coat that wouldn’t attract cat hair, so it’s all good!

After that, I picked up some Starbucks. Just a regular coffee with skim and one pump of caramel.

Good thing I stopped to take a photo before leaving because the employee started waving out the window because she forgot to give my debit card back!!! Whew!

And then I headed home. I had a few minutes of downtime before I had to head out again.

I got some fun things in the mail today! This was waiting for me when I got home. BOGO 50% off Gevalia! I decided to stock up…very literally.

I love Gevalia coffee. So good. Won’t have to buy coffee for a while now!

It’s kind of funny how this happened… but you are going to spot my cats in quite a few pictures from here on out… do you see Dudley in the one above? haha. Part of him anyways!

And while I was taking it easy, the Fed Ex man arrived with this!!

111412 007

YAY!!!! FINALLY! I can’t wait to try it out!

The cats had fun with the shipping box…

When one jumped out the other one immediately took the place.

And then I headed out for job #2. I had an interview to do. It went smoothly and it was interesting because the person I was interviewing was an artist of sorts! I love me some art!

I made sure to come home and get right to working out. I hit the pavement for my Intervals B workout.

Sorry for the poor quality. There’s something wrong with the mirror, that’s why it’s hazy. Do you spot Dudley? haha

It took me 39 minutes and I completed 2.75 miles. I walked the recoveries. I burned 417 calories! Nice!

I took a while to rest and then I tackled the core workout. My abs were feeling it today! Whew! And Dudley enjoyed getting in my face and biting my hair as I tried to do the moves…

For supper, I made Mexican egg rolls with Nasoya egg roll wrappers. OMW. I made this recipe up but they are AMAZING! I will have to share the recipe! I also made sure to get my veggies in with spinach and tomatoes topped with salsa and guacamole.

I am proud of myself for today. I felt like I was going, going, going all day long, but I fit in all of my healthy habits and got my exercise in. I’m starting to think of exercise as a necessary part of my day versus a chore.

I still have a few points left for the day too! SUCCESS!
